Delft Dynamics of the Netherlands exhibited its DroneCatcher counter-unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) system for the first time on 12 September at the DSEI exhibition in London.

DroneCatcher was developed with support from the Dutch military police (Marechaussee), the Dutch national police, and the Dutch Ministry of Safety and Justice to address the problem of how to detect and remove – in a controlled fashion – illegally operated UAVs from low-level airspace.

The system includes a netgun-armed unmanned quadcopter, with a ground-control station that includes a camera, laser rangefinder, and track-and-trace system.
